o ce toromince as a presidential candidate in many ways because of his opposition to the war in iraq. >> and what you saw in his "60 minutes" interview is that the white house clearly feels they are on very strong ground making that appeal. what he said is i'd lik to know whether governor romy rlly wa to forward with a war, a third war and a war with iran, is that what he's talking about. they feel that the american people are not only weary of war, but rlly understandably ouutenglanlging iran and the likelihood that that would imflan the entire region. >> let's talk about egypt. basically fledgling democracy. there was that statement by the president about whether or not egypt was an ally or an enem e prident of egypt. here's what he said when he was asked about that comment. >> translator: it was warm, it was not hot. and hot?s the difference in warm >> translator: same difference between friendship and being an enemy. we're not enemies, of course. >> but you're friends. >> translator: we're friends. >> al? >> translator: the u.s. president said otherwise. >> president morsi who li
in tampa, florida, people know that this president promised to bring the law in iraq to a close and that's been done. he promised to save the automobile industry. that's been done. this president has promised to deliver to the american people affordable accessible health care. that's been done. and much more could have been done if he could get some cooperation from the other side. and i think most american people know that the president has time and time again tried to move the country forward and from day one, the evening that he was inaugurated, republicans were meeting in washington to try and bring down his presidency. and people know he that. so the president, not knowing about that meeting and thinking that he was was on the up and up did not realize the extent to which the republicans would go to try to sometime any his programs. i think most american people know that and they're beginning to focus on it. >> to your point, congressman, president obama did promise back in 2000 # 8 to close the partis divide. let me splay that for you. >> in this country we rise or fall as one nati
in iraq is over, our troops are home. but the point that obama and biden both made is that a lot of men and women came home from those wars, wounded in body, wounded in spirit. we have a moral obligation to make sure that they get the benefits and the health care that they are entitled to and it really was pretty amazing that mr. romney forgot to talk about those wars and the men and women who sacrificed in fighting those wars. >> senator bernie sanders, thank you so much for being with us. let me go back to major and ann. ann, when did the democrats become the party of foreign affairs, when did they become the tough guys because that's what it sound like if you compare the democratic and republican conventions. >> an interesting evolution over the last couple of years. president obama has worked very hard to be not just the foreign policy president, but the national security president, and the military president. not just because he was able to be the one to take credit for bin laden, you know, he has been -- he's been a proponent of a lot more drone strikes something that liberals hav
are seen as withdrawing and we are paying a price for that weakness whether it be unraveling in iraq, the tragedy in syria, the tensions with israel and afghan situation unraveling. there is a lack of leadership there. >> and in fact, p.j. he called it the feckless foreign policy. did it happen because of the the president's weak leadership? >> i don't agree with john mccain at all in his characterization of where we are. in fact having been attacked in the middle east is because we're staying there promoting democratic governance in libya and probably a faction that wants to see a different kind of society and different kind of governance. chris stevens died because he was trying to help create a new libya, not retreating fromm the old. >> and the pictures we're looking at now are live from cairo. nick, what will you be watching for as this unfolds over the next couple of hours and days? >> well, you know, yemen is a little bit of a side show. even libya isn't central to the middle east as the whole egypt is. and it will be crucial to see whether president morsi comes out and really
. >> well, let's see what i've done since i came into office. i said i'd end the war in iraq. i did. i said that we'd go after al qaeda. they've been decimated in the fatah. that we'd go after bin laden. he's gone. so i've executed on my foreign policy, and it's one that the american people largely agree with. so, you know, if governor romney is suggesting that we should start another war, he should say so. >> alex, what's he trying to do there? >> well, first i think what the president is trying to do is, you know, there's been a very consistent critique of his performance on foreign policy from the right, that the obama administration has not been supportive enough of allies like israel, has not been assertive enough with iran. what obama's trying to do is claim a sort of aggressive middle ground that would force romney in order to make that criticism of the white house, would force romney to take some positions that are just a little bit out of step with where americans are. americans, after iraq and afghanistan, there is a sense, i think, there's not a huge appetite for more military ac
i'd say. when i took office we were losing nearly 800,000 jobs a month and were mired in iraq. today i believe that as nation we are moving forward again. >> more americans are living in po verity than when president obama took office. my plan will create 12 million new jobs over the next 4 years. helping lift families out of poverty and strengthening the middle class. >> does this signal a new phase of the ad wars and this campaign? i'm joined now by democratic strategist steve and deputy manager for john kerry and by former republican governor of michigan. good morning, gentlemen. >> good morning. >> steve, what do you think? is this the new face of the campaign? does it help most candidates to be more direct and obviously very different than some of the attack ads we've seen, especially from the super pacs? >> all campaigns have a rhythm and as you get closer to the end, people understand that there's a choice between two people at the top of the ticket. and they want to hear from them directly about what their plans are for the american people. we believe this election is a choic
troops are home from iraq and we have a game plan to bring troops home from afghanistan. four years ago osama bin laden was out there doing harm to the world. he's no longer there today. four years ago our auto industry was on the verge of collapse. today the u.s. auto manufacturers are doing well, creating manufacturing jobs for our future. we're in better shape today but we need to continue in the direction that will create the jobs we need for the future. we don't want to go back to the failed policies that brought us this misery. >> what do you want to hear tomorrow night? there has been criticism of mitt romney that his speech had a lot of great rhetoric earn short on specifics. does the president need to tell the american people more specifically than they've heard in a long time, about how he plans to move the country forward? >> i think you're going to find two different visions for america. i think president obama will talk about his record, what he's been able to do under an extremely difficult environment, how he's been able to change the direction of this country. and that w
of iraq and afghanistan and had the opportunity to say thank you and visit some of our wounded warriors at walter reed. last night we learned the news of this attack in benghazi. in some cases, americans lay down their lives for the country and the country is only strong as the character of our people and the service of those civilians and military who represent us over the globe. no attacks will alter that character or clips the light of the values we stand for. today we mourn for more americans that represent the very best of the united states of america. we will not waiver in our commitment to see that justice is done for the terrible act and make no mistake justice will be done. but we also know the lives these americans led stand in stark contrast to those of their attackers. these four americans stood up for freedom. and human dignity. they should give every american great pride in the country that they served. and the hope that our flag represents to people around the globe who also yearn to live in freedom and with dignity. we grieve with their families, but let us carry on thei

that he really doesn't know much about the country he inhabits. who are these freeloaders? is it the iraq war veteran who goes to the va? is it the student getting a loan to go to college? is it the retiree on social security or medicare?" and anne, one of the things that occurred to me is that ann romney did a good job, by most accounts, at the convention of really showing her husband as this person who was very caring, very involved in his community, very involved in his church. does this offset that? does this hurt that image? anne? >> oh, sorry. i didn't know you were addressing me here. yes, i think it absolutely does undercut it, not only because the message is completely counter to the message that ann romney was trying to put out there, but also because it's coming sequentially in time, you know, after the conventions. people traditionally start paying attention around the conventions through labor day. i think between now and leading up to this debate, any word that's uttered, any revelation that occurs is going to have, carry more weight than it would have at the time. now, i th
against iraq war veteran tammy duckworth. is that more competitive? >> there are some signs. the national republican congressional committee, t horeicamn a cable time just yesterday in areas that are included in the eighth district where joe walsh is seeking re-election. so we're seeing some hints at roll call and internal polls floating around that this race could be competitive. still not sure it's vy lo o r illinoisdta a that are competitive but it's rising. >> it's one that a lot of people are watching. so give us the inside scoop. ho el s who else are you looking at that cou be facing the chopping block? >> let's go to florida. davidive air a,e's had a lot of ethical es lyta stories in the miami herald this week. national republicans have not reserved any time there at all. they just pulled out of that race this week. to me, it's a question of whether national republicans will see this as enough of a race to invest. my guess ino. i don't think youill onol s there in the end. the democratic side, i would watch for john in massachusetts. the massachusetts is a true blue state. john tie
